It’s that time again.  I need to go over our frugal finds for the week.

  1. My daughter is in college to be an early elementary teacher.  I found a great deal in the library book sale room.  I found a dvd set of 100 scholastic storybook classics for $5.00.  I found several on sale online that sell for between $40 and $60.  I am hoping to help her build up her classroom with finds like these.
  2. Speaking of the book sale room, I found two, brand new bestseller hardcovers for .50 each.  I bought them for a Christmas gift for next year.  I am pretty sure that neither book was ever cracked open and I have someone on my list that loves the genre of book I purchased.  If your library has a book sale room, visit it often.  A lot of really good stuff is donated to those sales.
  3. Eric found a gorgeous glass bird feeder at Goodwill for $8.  It came with the artist information and has proved to be a good buy.
  4. I got a haircut with a $25 off coupon.  Haircut came to $23 with tip.
  5. By shopping at Aldi, our grocery bill was $73 for a week’s worth of food for 4 people.  I am able to do this by avoiding meat (for the most part), writing up a meal plan and sticking to it and avoiding processed foods (again, for the most part).

What did you do this week to save money?
